Free Race in Rome, Ga.

Rome,Ga. - there will be a FREE race this weekend and in January a 4 race series?

Cycle Therapy in Rome is hosting at a really cool farm venue. I rode it earlier this season and had a blast. The Jan series is $20 a race and you can race as many races as you want. The money will benefit charity and there are prizes.

I'm in there. I WILL FINISH THIS YEAR!

Stephen said...

Rock on! This year there's only the 60-mile option. I heard the extra 20 last year was mostly crappy stuff?

Time to get lots of ass-on-saddle time....

Rome Race Course Description
Just completed the initial course design last night and have prepared
for the rain if it happens. We are using nearlly the whole field section
on the upper part of the lake to avoid as much low wet areas as possible.
Track design for this event will features a lot more of a conventional cross design with track going throught the grass ( about 700+ poly post and several thousand feet of barricade tape with a lot of turns, a run up the lake damn and a steep ride down . I have decided to use only the short road section in front of the property (cold weather) to make it easier on the riders /workers. Track lenght is just over 1-mile of course including the short ( 300 yard road section ).

I Think this will be a great course.
